I'm a single professional in real estate with no real social life. I work 6 days a week and usually spend most of my (very minimal) spare time at the gym, cooking, or watching Parks and Rec/sleeping. I have a bunch of furniture but am happy to store some if necessary, currently living alone and looking to save money. I do have an indoor cat, she is pretty useless though and manages to cause no damage apart from my couch. She is fully toilet trained and has embarrassing cat anxiety so is pretty happy curled up on my bed. If you hate cats, she will avoid you. If you like cats, she's pretty much a hilarious alien so you'll vibe. Would prefer an ensuite but not necessary. I will need at least one car space as I drive a lot for work, so will need a secure place to keep it. Thanks y'all

Hi! I am a 22 year old female seeking a room or house to live in in a good few months. I wont be moving to Canberra until January 2019 but I'm putting this out there early just in case. I work full time in aged care and am gone during the weekdays, times do tend to vary. On weekends I enjoy spending time with my friends and most Saturday nights I am out, though I'm not a massive partier so you won't have to worry about me bringing the party home or being too boisterous haha. I have an adorable dog, who may seem scary because he is quite big, but he has a heart of gold and is the biggest sook of a dog you'll ever know. He think's he's a lap dog really. He is 2 years old so he has grown out of his puppy stage so there's not much worries about him being destructive or anything. He gets regularly walked. He does tend to cry a little when he is left outside alone, but he will get over it eventually. He doesn't bark or cause any trouble. He sleeps inside with me, that is a necessity as if he gets locked outside he tends to panic and runs away, and he has slept on my bed since the day he was born basically haha.

Correa

Looking in: Watson, Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Downer, Dickson, Campbell, Ainslie

Hello! I am a student at ANU in my final year of study in Sustainability and Enviro Science. I have just relocated to Canberra after some time in Perth and Melbourne. I have lived in share-houses before and am very considerate of others, clean up after myself and always do my share of household tasks. I love adventures in nature, playing/listening to music (don't worry, its quiet), and supporting social and environmental justice causes. I am hoping to find a house with heating (this Canberra winter is a killer), friendly people in their 20s who are reasonably social- I would love a cuppa tea or a glass of wine and chats every now and then, or the occasional shared meal etc. I do tend to get busy and need my time at home to recharge but still love some social times, and am interested in living in more of a "Home" than just a room in a house. Can move in late July but I am pretty flexible for the right place and absolutely happy to pay rent earlier if needed, or move in a bit later (August 1st would be the latest).

Homestay

Watson, Canberra

Homestay

Rent includes Internet, Utilities, entirely fully furnished Master bedroom and home. Happy to discuss shorter timeframe if suitable and/or negotiate part-time commuter arrangement (weekdays only). Seeking a kind, clean, considerate, respectful, mature and responsible working full-time individual to join our sweetheart home for 1 - 3 - 6 months (with a possibility of extension). You MUST be prepared to be loved by my rescue dog, so being dog friendly is essential. Honestly, you won't be able to fight it, she loves anyone with hands! Even 'she' dislikes other dogs - so she knows how you may feel before you met her. And she sleeps a lot and never barks, seriously not at all, she's like a cat...that doesn't bark. I have a 3 bedroom plus study home, in the quiet sanctuary suburb of older (cooler) Watson. Within walking distance to Watson shops est. 5 mins (Knox Cafe). Very central to the city centre and public transport within walking distance. Off street parking is available or if preferred can lock behind gated driveway (ah! we've seriously never had any issues). Offering the sunny master bedroom of my home, with full wall length mirrored built-in wardrobe (yep, that's right!). Bedroom is at the rear side of our house, so very quiet. It's fully furnished with the newest most comfortable queen size bed in the house, linen, pillows, doona and electric blanket (for those who feel the cold) included. And fresh towels (yep, all provided). Central heating and cooling. Superior washing machine. Wifi. Shared retro bathroom in great condition (sharing only with myself, really no competition on demand of use - plus mirror wardrobes in bedrooms to jazz up in front of). New Kitchen with everything you need (pots, pans, kitchen gadgets, fridge - the lot!) and renovated combined lounge/dining area. Coffee machine (yet it may be dying soon). oh! And a chest freezer in garage if you're a bulk buyer of frozen hoard or cook too much food (guilty!). Garage also available for some storage if required. Sunny back deck (for smokers and sun worship) and large grassy back lawn (too large, mowing kills me) with hedges (they also kill me). You simply bring yourself, your clothes and food! Walk-in! and once you crash in that bed, you are part of the home! Most likely just after being hugged on by my fur kid. I told you, you can't fight it, she loves you and she hasn't even met you yet... Rent includes everything, so no stress down the pipeline. If you feel like our place could be the place for you, please feel free to contact us! (Really me, as my dog has no email or phone).

Hi, I'm Tegan, I'm a full-time retail wench looking for a quiet house! In my spare time, I like to read, binge watch TV, play computer games and bake when I get the chance. I'll also be starting online study in the next few months. I'm a friendly person, but often at the end of the day I just need to have quiet time alone to unwind, so I won't be under your feet! That being said, I love finding mutual TV shows to binge together and like a chat :) I do my best to keep shared spaces clean and tidy and do my fair share of the housework. Ideally I'm looking for a small house with only 1-2 others. I work in the city, so I'm looking for somewhere between Belconnen and Weston Creek - I'd prefer an easier commute than Tuggers or north Gungahlin is all! Please message me if you think I'd fit in in your home, if you have any questions,or if you're a like minded gal looking to start a lease. Thanks a lot!

Seeking a large room, in a warm friendly house in Canberra! Also interested in teaming up with others to find a nice place.

I'm a creative type, enjoy a good conversation, playing guitar, photography / videography, and getting out into nature for a decent walk. Currently in a one bedroom apartment paying a silly amount of rent on my own. Want to reduce my living costs, and join some other likeminded folk in a warm, comfortable, spacious place that's homely. Open to teaming up with a few others and getting a place, if the personalities all work. What i need is a large unfurnished room to fit my queen sized bed, shelving and large desk, or a seperate area / room / study for shelving / desk. Also have a car, so will need a space to park that. Have a small bunch of furniture - queen sized bed, couch x2, fridge, microwave, bookshelves, 46" TV, stereo, bookshelves, etc... can be used if needed, otherwise will be put into storage / sold. If you think we'd be a good fit get in touch! Anthony.

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

I just moved here and I'm still setting it up and learning its quirks and the benefits of living in this part of town. It is easy to get anywhere in town from here. There are a few shopping areas in walking distance to pick from. Buses stop a few houses away if you need that. It has evidently been well looked after and has new carpet, a gas stove, plenty of hot water and the temperature stays comfortable even with no heater on all but the coldest nights. Which room you'd have is up for negotiating and it would be based on need as they are different sizes with different amounts of storage.
